Writing Portfolio

I am a student at New York University Tisch School of the Arts and I enjoy writing.

The tiger above is obviously from a template, but I do feel tigers are very much like writers. 

They sleep, they eat, and though they seem scary perhaps all they need is a hug.

Forms

3 Forms 1 Fool

Three forms of writing I enjoy

Screenwriting
Subrata Mitra. An Indian Cinema 
Legend and a personal Icon. My screenwriting is influenced by people like him.
Creative Writing
The Postmaster is a novel by Rabindranath Tagore that is as moving as it is perceptive. His honesty, simplicity, and warmth is what I wish to emulate.
Playwriting
A Kavad Box. A Rajasthani form of storytelling that melds words, songs, and paintings. Kavad showed me what stories could be and what I could do.
